Mary's Sampler II


Paulette of Plum Street Samplers has been been sharing a wonderful Sunday Mystery Sampler the last several weeks called Mary's Sampler and Mary's Sampler II.  The theme is the birth of Christ. The mystery lasts a total of 9 weeks and a new part is released every Sunday. This past Sunday was the start of the 5th week.  When you finish you will have a beautiful holiday sampler. I couldn't resist of course, so I gathered my supplies and I  started about 3 weeks in. The parts released have been so easy to manage, and even though I started later I was able to get caught up quite easily. Let's hope I can stay caught up! The only difference between the two samplers is that sampler 2 is a little more dense in it's stitching. I am stitching sampler 2.  I am stitching mine on 30 count Apple Brown Bindy with Gentle Art's threads.  If you haven't decided yet, go take a look! 

As usual, the month has gotten away from me, but that's not new.  I feel like I have been at work a lot with classes and working extra, so not a whole lot of stitching going on here. I am looking forward to November, my baby girl turns 18! We haven't quite decided what to do yet, though she continues to find ways to spend my money. I also am going to a retreat at Cecilia's Samplers in Branson, MO. with a friend. I have never been, so I am really looking forward to that. We are going to make a detour through Nashville as well. Can't wait!

Thanks to those of you left comments in regards to Cathey...she touched a lot of people and she will be missed. (Edited to add-there is a beautiful tribute pattern to Cathey and you can find it here)

Anyway, I am off to watch The Voice, love that show and hopefully get some stitches in.

Blessings

xoxo
